BoS 2012 Workshop, team ‘HERMIONE IS BADASS’ output

No comments

This year’s workshop sessions were designed to help get people talking and thinking together in smaller groups. We hope everyone had the opportunity to enjoy themselves and meet some interesting people. Each team had a maximum of 20 people from different companies and they all worked together to produce a series of specific outputs to 10 challenges. Overall available time was 90 minutes and the results were submitted online. Here are the outputs of HERMIONE IS BADASS.

The Outputs


HERMIONE IS BADASS didn’t disclose names or superpowers. They went straight to the rest of the challenges.

Using a single packet of spaghetti and marshmallows, HERMIONE IS BADASS built a spaghetti tower 104 inches tall. (Though it was clearly stuck to the window by marshmallows…)

To better their BoS experience, they wireframed a special Mobile App. They shared some screen shots with us.

HERMIONE IS BADASS members talked about something important they learned in BoS 2012 in a 1 minute video.

After cutting a piece of letter paper into a ring, HERMIONE IS BADASS claimed 24 people passed it over their head to the floor without ring breaking. You can see for yourselves here.

They built a spaghetti bridge to span a 98 inches wide gap. Here is the photo.

They drew a cartoon to encapsulate the Business of Software Conference. Have a look.
